» Guilty Laughs

This one's back in the mid-eighties
The (dead) mother of a girl I worked with had been cremated accidentally by an over enthusiastic hospital. There was a minor scandal at the time (in the Rochdale Observer, at least).
A few weeks later I was (for some reason) having an anti-smoking rant, in which I linked cancer to smoking.
Said girl said "my mother died of cancer and she didn't smoke."
"She did at the end though", said I.
Room goes quiet for two seconds waiting to gauge her reaction.

Thank god she laughed.

» Impulse buys

Not me, but the wife...
..is famous for it.
A few years back we went to buy a small pot of paint to fix a scratch on the car - and bought a new car.
Bizarrely, we also bought the paint. And the new car was a different colour.

Two years ago we went out to buy cat food and parked outside a house near the shop.
"That's a nice house", she says.
Guess where we now live?

» Cars

Sorry, but I don't drive.
Remember all those ads on TV that said "Don't Drink and Drive"?
I opted for "drink".

» The most childish thing you've done as an adult

This QOTW is obviously affecting me
Last night we had sausage and mash for tea and I couldn't help serving it up "Beano" style, with the sossies stuck in the mash.

Wife thinks I'm mad.....
